High school graduates who have a strong desire to pursue a career in managing and/or marketing Registered Jersey™ cattle are encouraged to apply for the Fred Stout Experience award.
The award is presented annually in memory of Fred J. Stout Sr., Mt. Carmel, Ill., a lifelong Jersey breeder and member of the Jersey Marketing Service staff from 1978 to 1997 who believed that the best learning experiences happen in the everyday world.
Two awards will be offered: (1) a summer marketing internship with Jersey Marketing Service, Reynoldsburg, Ohio, and (2) an on-farm, structured internship in Jersey herd management.
To apply, specify which experience (marketing internship, on-farm internship) is preferred, or indicate if you are interested in both opportunities. Submit a one-page résumé listing previous work experience, skills and other qualifications, plus a separate cover letter stating your ambitions, goals and career aspirations, including plans for achieving them. The letter must also explain how and why the Fred Stout Experience will be of benefit in achieving future goals. A summary of involvement with and interest in Registered Jersey™ cattle is required.
Two letters of support are required, one from an active breeder of Registered Jersey™ cattle, excluding immediate family members; and the other from a teacher, mentor or past employer. These must be mailed directly by the supporters to the AJCA office.

Fundraiser Adds $21,700 to Fred Stout Experience Fund
Dayton, Ore., June 26, 2010 -- The Friends of Fred Stout raised $21,700 towards the Fred Stout Experience Internships through the sale of a heifer today at the National Heifer Sale, held at Forest Glen Oaks near Dayton, Ore.
Strayhorn Jarretts Robin, a P9 daughter of Forest Glen VD Jades Jarrett-ET, GJPI +109, was purchased by 114 syndicate members from across North America for $18,000 and then donated back to the sale to be purchased by Janice Rector, Hilmar, Calif., for $3,700.
In 2000, a group of friends and colleagues of Fred J. Stout Sr., Mt. Carmel, Ill., came together and established an internship program in his memory. They developed the concept with Fred’s beliefs in mind: the best learning experiences happen in the everyday world. The awards bestowed each year honor that conviction by providing financial support for on-farm and JMS internship experiences.
Fred was a lifelong Jersey breeder and member of the Jersey Marketing Service staff from 1978 to 1997. He was instrumental in the growth of the company’s marketing activities, and later added duties as a type evaluator and in customer field service for the American Jersey Cattle Association.
After three years of development and fundraising the first intern was announced in 2003. In 2010, a second internship was added to the program, giving two youth each year the opportunity to gain hands-on experience.
Previous recipients of the Fred Stout Experience Award are Tara Bohnert, Illinois (2003), Allison Waggoner, South Carolina (2004), Dan Bauer, Wisconsin (2005), Aaron Horst, Pennsylvania (2006), Jacob Pieper, Maryland (2007), Katie Albaugh, Maryland (2008), Brady Core, Kentucky (2009) and Kim Wilson, Missouri and Ivy Roberts, Florida (2010).
With the second internship in place, and a donation heifer from committee members Stuart Schooley and Dan Bansen, the Friends of Fred Stout committee began selling $100 shares for the heifer. The 180 shares were purchased by:
